According to the “road map” for leaving the lockdown, presented yesterday by the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, for holidays abroad can not be thought before May 17, but still travel agencies and airlines are already “overheated” by reservations, said B. BBC.
Yesterday, Boris Johnson announced that a report on returning to travel abroad would be presented later. The government will then decide to lift travel restrictions. However, this cannot happen earlier than the beginning of the third phase of easing the measures, which should start on May 17, BNR reported.
Despite the great uncertainty, airlines and travel agencies announced today that yesterday afternoon, when the Prime Minister announced the “road map”, their telephone lines and websites were overheated by requests. The tour operator TUI said that they had the busiest day in months, with a special interest in Greece, Spain and Turkey.
Thomas Cook is already “flooded” with reservations in countries such as Greece, Cyprus, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
EasyJet reported a 337 percent jump in flight bookings and a 630 percent increase in bookings for resorts such as Alicante, Malaga, Palma, Faro and Crete. Most reservations are made for August.
“The government’s roadmap is good news for all those who are looking forward to going on holiday,” Thomas Cook CEO Alan French told the BBC.
However, there is also great regret that the country will remain closed for the Easter holidays. And there are those who warn that you should not rush, because Johnson did not give a 100 percent guarantee that strict restrictions will not be returned if necessary.
